The Camden Roar

Drummond Street Festival 2017 © Simon Waller

The market! The lock! The People’s Theatre! Amy Winehouse, Madness and Blur. The British Library! Hampstead Heath! Withnail & I!

It’s London’s most iconic borough, and many of its people and stories are well known. But not all of them. And so, to celebrate 25 years resident in Camden, CPT launches ‘The Camden Roar’, a three-week festival of theatre by, for and about Camden and its people.

Throughout May, artists including Tom Marshman, Camden Youth Theatre, Dani Kolanis, Beats & Elements – not to mention CPT itself – will present a host of new work made especially for our neighbourhood, while extending (as Camden always does) a generous welcome to the rest of London – and the world.

Early Bird: book before midnight on Monday 24 December for tickets at just £7.50 (hurry, this offer is limited!)
